§ 8. Mr. Timmons
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has yet decided to make a compensation payment to a certain individual who met with an accident in Saughton Prison in April, 1957, in a case the circumstances of which have already been sent to him by the hon. Member for Bothwell.
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
No. As my right hon. Friend has informed the hon. Member, this man's solicitor has been told that liability for damages is not accepted.
